Stayed at both the Intercontinental times square and the Intercontinental Barclays and would definitely recommended the Barclays as a beautiful, fairly new hotel.
just made Lucky's list:

I had two nights reserved at the Holiday Inn Ashkelon for next week. The hotel has left IHG at the beginning of August.
I got an email today that they are canceling my stay and redepositing the points in my account.

Is there anything I can do?

In the same boat.  I called the hotel (before IHG's email) and they said the points stay was in their system and would be honored.

Now I will call back to see if that's still the case, and if it's still noted as paid in full.  If not, I'll cancel.

Update: They didn't reinstate the reservation but they gave me 20k points

Website's super unclear.

Will Gold Elite prevent my points from expiring due to no activity?

Is Ambassador status worth it?

Yes, I have probably gotten at least 3X ROI after 6 months of membership so far.  Usually the BOGO certificate is more than enough to put you in positive territory.

Am I really late to this and just noticed this now or is it very new? - the IHG website is a total disaster now. The biggest downside (for many of us) is that if you search for an award and it's not available on that date, you can no longer expand the calendar to see available dates.

I have Chase IHG with free night -- if I join ambassador program, will I still get the free night from the credit card in additional to the free weekend night from the ambassador program?

What are some good benefits of the ambassador program?

yes, for full benefits check on their site,  it is worth it if you are a frequent traveller and will be staying at intercontinental.

Anyone know of any current hotels where I can "buy" IHG points for under .5?
